Re: Hybrid Fielders and Axio specific

To prevent battery failure, I suggest you get the HV Battery pack serviced and cleaned every 60,000 km to 80,000 km, or every 3 to 4 years. how exactly is the battery serviced? The HV battery has to be completely disassembled and cleaned to remove the build up of dust, grit dirt, etc, which gets be...

I can help you select one, but they are not cheap, its gonna be alot cheaper to install a 40Gal electric.
I spent about $10,000 for everything that included purchase, Duties/taxes, and installation.
A 40Gal is gonna cost about $3500-$4500.

Still interested?

Thanks for the summary points on this topic. We decided to go tank.

Tankless GAS, meaning no electric bill to worry about. It uses normal LPG cooking gas to heat the water. You have one? How long does the LPG tank last? I'd say approx. 3 weeks on a small 20lbs tank.

This is your source!

Look at adding capacitors to reduce the Wasted Power of the pump. Maybe its just so inefficient that its wasting most of the power consumed hence your bill is much higher than it needs to be.

Re: Duane was dead wrong!Hybrid Cars cheaper to maintain!

I'm seeing they moved the age restriction from 2 years to 4 years ( yay, yippy, hooray), but the car will only be exempted from "Motor Vehicle Tax", we still have to pay duty and vat, (not cool, yuk).
In the budget, they mentioned exemptions from MVT and VAT.

Just wondered if the car tells you how much KM each of the engines do... Not really, the car just logs the KM travelled like any other car. As long as the wheel turns, then the trip counter logs it. The car does not make any distinction between battery driven or engine driven KM. (Speaking strictly...
